I upgraded my MacBook Pro RAM to 8gb and now the original 4gb is unused. I want to use these to upgrade my Lenovo U165 RAM, which is only 2gb. Is this possible?

I also found out that both used DDR3 RAM as well. But are they compatible? My MacBook Pro was bought in 2010 and used Snow Leopard (already installed).

Thanks

You'll need to list the specs of the RAM chips. –  Lee Taylor Jan 5 '13 at 3:34

As far as I know, apple dosen't use non standard ram and you should be able to install it. If it was non standard, it would have a differerent pinout to prevent folk from using the wrong ram.

If it looks like the sodimm picture above from wikipedia, it should probably work, assuming your chipset supports that amount of ram (which it should).
